We had Witter shipping deliver our Hunter 260 which we bought used from a fellow in Iowa. We saved some cash buying out of the USA and were happy with the uShip experience. Some of our bids were as much as 3 times the price, so the money we saved allowed us to make a vacation out of meeting our shipper in Washington, over a 12 hour drive from the central interior of British Columbia, Canada. John Witter did a great job of keeping us updated on his progress though the upper States between Iowa and Washington. John even hung around late into the evening to help with a wiring issue that had cropped up on the trailer. A friendly patrol officer in Davenport, Wa came by while we were working on the trailer to see if we were ok. Deputy Hayes offered us help and suggested where we could buy fuses for the truck after we had blown all of the 15amp spares on hand. Overall it was a great experience, learnt quite a bit, met some real decent people and saw some great scenery on the way to our meeting point. Sure I'd use uShip again. Regards, Steve Broadhead
